    The Community’s Table: Shaping the Future of Downtown Austin

    Picture your downtown Austin in 10-15 years.

    What would you like to see?

    We invite you to think about this question and write your vision for downtown Austin on a block of wood—we’re calling it a vision board—at one of our community events. Your vision board will join others in creating a community public art piece that will be installed in Republic Square on November 18, 2017.

    Your voice is important, and with your input we can help build a downtown for everyone. By compiling the vision boards that will collectively become the top of a community table, we will be reminded of the diversity of voices and perspectives, needs and desires that will shape the vision for the future of downtown Austin.
